Hindu temple holds grand opening in Castle Rock

A Hindu temple housing Lord Venkateswara will offer Seva (worship) beginning Friday-Sunday with three days of grand-opening celebrations at 1495 S. Ridge Road in Castle Rock.

The Sri Venkateswara Swamy Temple, an 11,500-square-foot building that officials say is unique in the Rocky Mountain Region, is built in the ancient tradition of Agama and Vasthu Sastras (ancient Hindu architectural principles and science).

The temple is on an 8-acre lot with mountain views.

Muhoortam, inauguration of the temple, is to be held at the auspicious time of 7:19-8:21 p.m. For a complete schedule of events, visit svtempleco.org.
